Venice is uniquely
beautiful. This magical city is famous the world over for its canals and
historic bridges. And yet these attractions are also what put many people off
visiting with their mobility scooter. To many visitors with mobility issues,
Venice might seem like too much of a challenge.
We think that is a real
shame, as you are missing out on one of the world’s most fascinating getaways. Despite
what you might think, Venice is surprisingly accessible. Over half the city is
accessible without having to cross any of the bridges.
Moscow feels like a
city built for giants. The scale of the place is incredible. The roads are wide.
The buildings are monumental and the parks are vast. And then, there is also the
great weight of history in this ancient city.
Surely there are few other
places (Berlin perhaps?) where so many momentous events have taken place. You
can feel it in every brick and stone, red star and golden dome.
But then this can also
be a surprisingly accessible city too.
Montpellier might not
be one of the best-known cities in Europe. But we think that it certainly deserves
to be. This beautiful French city is an historic gem, with a fascinating
medieval centre. But it is also a vibrant, modern cultural hotspot that makes
for the perfect getaway.
Most impressive of all
is the effort the city has gone, to make as many of its sights and facilities
as accessible as possible. The city actively encourages its tourist attractions
and shops to be open to all – and the results are impressive.
It’s best to think of
Germany’s second city, Munich, as a capital in its own right. It is the state city
of Bavaria, for one. But it also has the scale and grandeur of a capital city
too. Packed full of art galleries, museums, great restaurants and of course,
beer halls, it is the perfect getaway.
Like the national
capital, Berlin, it has a rich history all of its own. There is plenty to
explore over a few days. So, here is Quingo Scooters’ guide to the very best
accessible sights that Munich has to offer.
It’s not one of the
largest capital cities in Europe, but Ljubljana is rapidly becoming one of the
most accessible. This hidden gem is the perfect destination for a short break
and it’s often referred to as a ‘mini Prague’. With its beautiful Baroque architecture,
medieval old town and rich history it is easy to see why.
But while the
comparison is a fair one, we think that Ljubljana deserves a lot more attention
than it gets. So, here is Quingo Scooters’ guide to some of the best accessible
things to do in Ljubljana.
Take in the view from Ljubljana Castle
Most castles weren’t
originally designed to be accessible, but the team at Ljubljana Castle have
done an excellent job of transforming this historic building.
